10 days till first race

10 days till the start of the first IMSA race of the season, which is also the start of my 2018 IMSA Retirement Tour.

This blog will be updated with info as much as possible, but sometimes it's difficult since it requires a laptop and internet access.

If interested, I will probably post live or immediate post on my Facebook page, much easier and quick on the smart phone. So check it out and my Twitter account.

Watkins Glen Tickets Purchased

And with that, the final ticket purchase for my 2018 IMSA Retirement Tour. Just bought my Watkins Glen, Six hours of the Glen tickets, Esses Party Deck and camping.

I now have them all bought, with track side camping. Also just bought and installed a new motorcycle seat from mustang, with a back rest, and highway pegs. Should make the long rides more manageable.

Everything is ready, just hoping for good weather and waiting for each race.

Follow Up on Road America

I do believe this will be my first, and last time I ever go to a Road America event/race.

As I posted yesterday, it was just over 400 bucks for a great weekend Turn 14 ticket package, and a place to camp, and a place to park my motorcycle. I get an e-mail today saying my order was incomplete, to call them. So I did. They wanted another 60 bucks for a camp ground arm band, to show that I'm allowed in the camping area all weekend. You would think that would be included in the actual camp ground/spot ticket purchase.

Remember, sure this is for the whole weekend, but the actual IMSA race is less then 3 hours long. In comparison, I got all the same stuff above for Road Atlanta, a 10 hour IMSA race, for 150 bucks.

The owners of Road America, should re-name their track to Road UN-America... disgusting!

Road America and Road Atlanta Tickets Confirmed

Just bought my weekend tickets for both Road America and Road Atlanta IMSA races in 2018. (Now just need to get my Watkins Glen, 6 hours of the Glen, tickets. Then have them all for my 2018 IMSA Retirement Tour.)

Funny, the Road America race is just under 3 hrs long, The Road Atlanta race is a 10 hour race... but for MC parking, and a small tent camping, and a weekend race pass... Road America was $425 and Road Atlanta, same deal but a 10 hour race is only $155... sounds fishy to me, or greedy by one of those tracks.

IMSA Mid-Ohio Tickets Confirmed

Just got my Mid-Ohio tickets for the 2018 IMSA race, weekend pass with a spot to pitch up my tent. The seat is in the top grandstand so I can see most everything, but also allowed to walk around and stand on corner mounds.

 3 down, 3 to purchase, once their selling them.

Sebring Classic 2017 Highlights

Here's a quik video I made of some of the best pictures I took at this past weekends 12 hours of Sebring Classic, Pistons and Props race and air show at, well you guessed it, Sebring International Raceway. It was my first long distance camping trip with my Harley. Learned a lot, more on that later. Enjoy the 3 min show.
